Ya, try a newer version.  Seems like Jose fixed a signed integer
overflow, although I'm not sure if it's related. 

Might as well run the indexed under gdb and try and get a back trace.
Set a breakpoint on "progerr" -- that's called to display that error
message and then start indexing.

How much are you trying to index?  Are there very large files or is it
just a lot of small files?

[Jose, can you imagine any reason why it would be trying to malloc
30MB?]
